If you have been going through your post-game stats, you must be seeing this “Self Mitigated damage” section in the page and must be wondering what it is, this article will tell you exactly what Self Mitigated damage is in League of Legends
What is Self Mitigated Damage?
In simple terms, the amount of damage reduced or blocked on yourself through abilities or shields is self mitigated damage. Any damage reduction whether it is from your resistances ( Magic Resist or Armor) or from your abilities ( Lux’s Prismatic Barrier (W)) or from items (Bloodthirster shield, Knight’s vow) all count towards your self mitigated damage.
Self mitigated damage must not necessarily be from your own shields and abilities, it can also be from your Allies shields and abilities or their items too. Basically, any damage reduction on yourself is the damage you have mitigated. Your support Janna shielding you will also count as Self Mitigated damage or your Yasuo Passive shield will also count as such.
This stat actually shows you how much you have reduced damage and will help you understand to what extent are you using your abilities and items. For example, a Nautilus should have about 150k damage Self mitigated because of his Titan’s Wrath (W) shield in an average game, if you find that you are only having about 60k Self Mitigated damage that means you are not using your W to its full potential and have lots of room for improvement.
After looking at the image above you must be thinking that okay it makes sense for Nautilus to Self Mitigate 175k damage but how did Xerath end up mitigating 17k damage? He does not have any shields or damage reduction abilities so how did he end up mitigating so much damage? Well, it is because the Karma’s shield on Xerath also counts as Self mitigated damage.
All Shielding from external sources also counts as Self Mitigated damage as the damage reduction is happening on you. Apart from that, it could have been that Xerath also had a fully upgraded Archangel’s staff which provides a shield as an active which could have also helped in the Self Mitigated Damage.
That example should have helped cleared your doubt on “What is Self Mitigated Damage” and now you must be wondering on what all items and abilities help in Mitigating damage.
